A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.
Carnegie Medal winner Meg Rosoff gives a whole new look to life in this brilliantly entertaining novel about what if the job of being god was in the hands of a spotty adolescent. Being an average teenager, Bob has never been that reliable so it is no great surprise that the world he creates in just six days is not completely perfect. But when Bob falls in love with Lucy things get wildly out of hand! A romp of a story that makes the world look a different place!
What if God were a teenage boy ? In the beginning there was Bob. And Bob created the heavens and the earth and the beasts of the field and the creatures of the sea, and twenty-five million other species including lots and lots of gorgeous girls. And all of this, he created in just six days. Six days! Congratulations Bob! No wonder Earth is such a mess. Imagine that God is a typical teenage boy. He is lazy, careless, self-obsessed, sex-mad - and about to meet Lucy, the most beautiful girl on earth. Unfortunately, whenever Bob falls in love, disaster follows. Let us pray that Bob does not fall in love with Lucy.
This is Meg Rosoff at her ingenious best; a cracking story full of brilliant humour and teen angst. In fact it's so good we reckon you'll read it in a sitting.

This is Fiction Puffin Loves."
